3. Work on your insulin resistance
Most women with PCOS have some level of insulin resistance. Many studies have shown that there’s a direct correlation between improving insulin resistance and reduced testosterone. Lower testosterone means improved ovulation, which in turn means you’re more likely to get pregnant!
Eating a low sugar diet, eating throughout the day at regular intervals and taking supplements that help with cravings, egg quality and ovulation, like Ovasitol, which can help improve insulin resistance.
4. Avoid intense workouts
It seems totally counterproductive when your doctor has been telling you to “just lose weight in order to get pregnant,” but hear me out! High intensity workouts massively spike our stress hormones like cortisol. For women with PCOS, it’s not easy to come back down from that huge spike. Unmanaged cortisol levels contribute to hyperandrogenism, including high testosterone, which causes excessive hair growth in women, and also interferes with fertility.
Instead, try slow, weighted workouts to help you lose weight and avoid triggering further PCOS symptoms.
